emphasize though, is you know there are a lot of people left and right who have criticisms of barack obama today. the same was true of dr. king before he became a martyr, and almost a deity that everybody bows to. i remember democrats who were for vietnam didn't like him. conservative black ministers didn't like him. obviously there were lynch mobs ready for him in the fast. even the radical young black activists made fun of him for being too gradual. thank god something pure and positive can be transmitted to future generations. >> john: kristal tom brought up president obama and he does fall short of the ideals. there was a picket sign in dc saying king had a dream and obama has a drone. do you think these critiques are fair or would dr. king approve of putting drones in soldiers and keeping them out of harm's way. >> he presented this country with a great deal of hope, and concrete change. i think that's just my opinion i'm not speaking as a journalist but i think there is a lot to look forward to hopefully in this second term. >> john: do you agree tom? >> yes, i mean, i think dr. king
